Here's a great scalloped potato recipe that's so easy and absolutely delicious. The leftovers are just as good, maybe even better, the next day. This is one of my favorite and most prepared recipes, from my 1971 Florence Junior Welfare League cookbook.
Another of my favorite recipes from the Sunset International Cookbook. The original recipe called for peeled and chopped raw potatoes but I've never had good luck using raw potatoes for this recipe. Therefore my adaptation is to use leftover cooked (mashed) potatoes. Can be served as a main meal sidedish or for breakfast.
If you looked up comfort food in the dictionary this is what you'd find. I usually half this recipe and it's more than enough for the three of us, but I'm posting the recipe as it was given to me by a family friend. Kids love it and so do adults, it's sure to be a family favorite.
My family loves this and I make it on regular rotation, it's so easy to make just mix everything in one large bowl then bake, you may prepare the complete casserole and refrigerate until ready to bake, which makes this a perfect potluck dish! --- I have even made this using frozen french fries that I cut up into small pieces when I had no hash browns on hand and can also be made using cooked cubed potatoes --- cream of chicken soup may be used in place of mushroom soup, you may even throw in some chopped cooked ham or chicken also, I most always increase this by using two cans of soup, 1-1/2 cups sour cream and using half a 5-pound bag of hash browns --- you will love this! :)
These potato chips are very easy to make in the microwave. Also, they are healthier for you as they are not cooked in any oils. This method has intrigued so many people that have tasted them and then made them for themselves. The younger people just love them.
My parents worked on a Cracker Barrel training video (which they use to train the chefs) and got this recipe a few years ago. Cracker Barrel's recipe seems to have changed a bit over these few years but not for the best. This is their recipe though and has become a family favorite. We usually have it now for Easter and Thanksgiving and its also great for a brunch. Happy Cooking!
The story on this one is that I was trying to bring something new to our family Thanksgiving. Our meal is usually traditional with the same recipes every year and I didn't want to throw anything too exotic into the mix. I didn't realize how well it had gone over until the next year when I recieved an assortment of enthusiastic voicemails, 2 days before Thanksgiving, requesting it again. Two Novembers ago we had a hepatitis outbreak in Dallas traced back to green onions which gave me the idea of substituting tiny broccoli florets or leeks, just use a little creativity if that many onions turn you off.
In 2006 we had a Zaar lunch at Efes One Turkish Restaurant at Albion in Brisbane. Their Turkish banquet was fabulous and this is one of the entrees we had. I wrote down the name of it on a table napkin, then googled recipes when I got home and experimented until I was able to replicate it. There are quite a few steps, but it's really quite simple and well worth the effort. Essentially these are fried potato and eggplant stacks, interspersed with a thick tomato sauce and then drizzled with garlic flavoured yoghurt and garnished with chopped parsley. The taste just 'zings' in your mouth! Don't overdo the chilli - it's only supposed to have a little background heat. Just a final note, the skin of larger eggplants may go tough when you fry them, so opt for small to medium if you can.
This one is either for serving up the family reunion (to impress the heck out of the kinfolk), or, to hoard all for yourself. I LOVE 'tater salad sandwiches and this version of the old standby is my pick. I credit my mom (gone now) with having developed the recipe. I'm sure that her own grandmother and step-mom had their finger in this one too. Of course, I had to tweak it a bit but it's not a lot different from its genesis. A perfect side dish to fried chicken and/or corn on the cob.
I have had people who swear they hate Miracle Whip eat an ENTIRE PLATE of this potato salad. It's my mom's recipe, and you can try it with regular Mayo, but I won't stand by the results because it's so good with the Whip that I've never tried it any other way!
These are soooo good! Do not be afraid of the jalapeno, they do not end up at all spicy. (in fact, I often add more then one!)
You will never go back to boring mashed potatoes again! I got this recipe from allrecipes, and was shocked that it has not been posted here.
I have been making these for years, it's a family favorite! all ingredients are wrapped in a foil pouch then grilled for about 30-40 minutes, add in some cooked cubed ham for a complete meal, you could even make the packets well in advance then refrigerate until ready to grill :) Make certain to use only large heavy-duty foil for this and spray the inside of the foil generously!
This recipe was found in one of my first cookbooks,The Good housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook printed back in 1980. I've altered it a bit since then.You can also grate the spuds and onion in a Cuisinart, but the hand grating makes them a little creamier. I also prefer the electric frying pan for more even cooking.My daughter adores these! I usually serve them with some beef tenderloin pieces and fresh pineapple on the side.
